This round-up blog post has a simple main purpose. It brings together a dozen recent entries, published between 23 February and 5 March 2017 on three blogs, in English (EN), Finnish (FI) or Swedish (SV), about the EU social market economy and the European pillar of social rights. Överhusets inre marknad (SV) House of Lords or European Single Market? (EN) EU:n sosiaalinen markkinatalous (FI) Erittäin kilpailukykyinen sosiaalinen markkinatalous (FI) Social marknadsekonomi och socialklausul (SV)...

In February and March I wrote a number of blog posts compiled in the entry EU social market economy and social pillar . It is time to register the progress of the social dimension and the social pillar of the European Union, but let us first return to the public consultation after a reminder of one of the aims of the EU, as laid down in Article 3(3) TEU: a highly competitive social market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress . While we are at it, why not recall the horizontal...

Our discussion about the European Council (EUCO) and the new Leaders’ Agenda for thematic meetings continued with a look at the briefings from the  European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) and the EUCO conclusions of 19 October and EU27 conclusions 20 October 2017 (Article 50 TEU), in EPRS: keeping tabs on the European Council . The Leaders’ Agenda timetable was described by president Tusk as a living document, apt to change over time, but let us take a look at the near future. Less...

In the Bratislava Roadmap the heads of state or government declared their determination to make a success of the EU at 27. The leaders promised to use the 25 March 2017 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties to round off the process and to set out orientations for their common future together. Having seen the auspices, the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker made a sober assessment. Instead of reform proposals, the Commission published a discussion...

5 years ago a small group including me and Teemu Leinonen formed the Finnish Association of Free, Libre and Open Source Software in Education (FLOSSE). Although we did some great things the effort didn’t last because the people involved were not that interested in running a traditional association. As in Robert Putnam’s book Bowling Alone: [...]

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna. Puheen osalta voin sanoa, että siitä valtaosa osa on runoiltu lennolla Helsigistä JFK:lle, loput lauantai-iltana ja Suomen valtion viralliset tahot eivät ole sitä nähneet ennen sen pitämistä, joten vastuu virheistä ja latteuksista on jotakuinkin yksin minun.

After the 18 October 2017 tripartite social summit the president  Donald Tusk offered an optimistic view on the role of the European Council (EUCO) for the future of Europe in general and the deepening of the economic and monetary union (EMU) in particular: From all quarters, there is now a new willingness to energise and enrich our work, draw on new ideas, maintain our unity and increase the dynamism of the EU. I will be calling on leaders to work together according to a strict timetable on...

The blog post Reflection paper on globalisation: Opportunity or threat? , which  introduced the European Commission’s reflection paper on harnessing globalisation COM(2017) 240 , left me with a desire to present the reasons of the Commission and how it wants to handle the internal and external pressures of globalisation, as part of the discussion about the future of Europe - #FutureOfEurope on Twitter. Profound changes We may be well or ill prepared, but profound changes await us. As the EU...

Is This (photographic) Art? -

Ran into the concept of artworld and its interesting definitions. One specifically caught my attention, namely one by Howard Becker ( Art Worlds . Berkley : University of California Press, 1982). The basic idea is that artworlds are communities of networked individuals and that art is collective actions within the community. To blend in some Forrest Gump - Art is what artist does, sir! Thinking it like this makes it easier to accept that there no (and can't be) specifiq measures on defined...

Good Knit's Road - Hyvänneuleentie 7 -

Summit-huivin ohje löytyy uusimmasta Knitty.comista . Oli pakko kokeilla ohjetta, aaltoileva reiällinen kuvio oli niin houkutteleva. Mietitytti miten mallineule on toteutettu, ja helppohan se oli. Olen tykästynyt vaihteeksi kaulaan kiedottaviin huiveihin ja siksikin tein tästä näin kapean. Toiseksi kokeilin ohjeesta poiketen ainaoikeaa, koska alkuperäisessä ohjeessa reunat käpristyvät. Lankana on Noron Kureyon Sock , josta neuloin ensimmäistä kertaa. Lankaa olen hillonnut...

I had to skip a flight to Lapland for giving a presentation due to the volcano eruption in Iceland – first force majeure for me. Due to curiosity, I’ve been keeping an eye on the phenomena from the social media point of view. It is obvious that once again social media is playing an important [...]

In the European Commission’s so called (so called, because it did not contain concrete proposals) White Paper on the Future of Europe: Reflections and scenarios for the EU27 by 2025; Brussels, 1.3.2017 COM(2017) 2025 final , the proto-executive promised to contribute to the discussion by publishing five reflection papers: developing the social dimension of Europe; deepening the Economic and Monetary Union, on the basis of the Five Presidents' Report of June 2015; harnessing globalisation; the...

At the end of the January comScore released interesting report: Social Networking Services are driving the growth of Mobile Internet in Europe.This is many ways interesting as it tells that mobile phone users are not just consuming and using one-way published content, like news, but also using their mobile phones to communicate and participate.Many Social Networking sites, like Facebook, has

Our customary check of the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , reveals no visible updates since yesterday and the language selection remains one out of twenty-four: English only. We return to the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the next section is Citizens’ Dialogues (from page 97). According to the brochure (page 98), there had been 312 Citizens’ Dialogues in all in the member states since the start of the Juncker Commission; of these 129 on the future of...

The Finnish Adult Education Centre (of the City of Helsinki) has started a project dealing with interactive and social media web tools and facilities. I have made some notes about the early plans and goals about the project in this blog (see more from my notes at 2007 Nov 3rd).The goals have been changed a bit during these several months (actually the first ones go back to one year almost) and

Bacon and Oppression -

Achievements have ruined me and my gaming. Two of my favourite XO games at the moment, GTA IV and Burnout Paradise, are something they call "free roaming" games. So I supposedly should enjoy all kinds of random tomfoolery without having the pressure of earning points or completing any kinds of goals. Yes, supposedly. So how is it that I've spent the last three days in activities such as walking around Liberty city with a pigeon map in the one hand and a 30 hour timer in the other? I know I'd...

Christmas, the most commercial religious holiday of all is approaching. One might think that the materialistic, carnevalistic celebration of religious holidays would not have reached Bhutan yet – wrong. The two tsechu s, religious festivals I have testified in Thimphu, the capital and in Bumthang, Central Bhutan have had a vast selection of attractions outside the official programme of sacred dances ( cham ): gambling, drinking, dancing girls...you know, the usual things you would associate...

This post tries to briefly explain the little known various styles of Bhutanese music which you can hear blasting from the local radio stations every day. Religious music is in a category of its own, with sacred dances and monastery music - here I will only focus on folk and popular music. B-pop Starting with the newest form: B-pop , a style "invented" by a local music studio in Thimphu called M-Studio . They have produced several hits during their few years of existence, most famously...

Bhutanese people often ask how do I like Bhutan, adding that "it must be very different from your country".  Actually, in many ways, it isn't.  Just to name a few common things between Finland and Bhutan:  Forest coverage in Finland: 78 %, in Bhutan: 72 % People are modest and don't like bragging about themselves Showing emotions is not common, and talking about them is even less common And finally, alcohol consumption is high (highest in South Asia), and the people who drink, drink a lot...

Vanhempainvapaan lomassa on jäänyt aikaa jonkin verran myös lukemiselle. Eräs vaikuttavimpia romaaneja vähään aikaan on Tahar Ben Jellounin Lähtö , joka kertoo marokkolaisen nuoren miehen ja hänen perheensä tarinan. Joka vuosi satoja, ellei tuhansia laittomia siirtolaisia katoaa Välimereen heidän pyrkiessään Eldoradoksi uskomaansa Eurooppaan jonka valot näkyvät omalta rannikolta. Romaani kertoo Tangerin katujen elämän toivottomuudesta, työttömyydestä ja turhuudesta. Tämä...
